Great car while in warranty !!!!!!!
By Paul on


2006 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6M)


The design department did its job flawlessly with the C-Class; The car is a delight to drive when new and shows great composure on the road and lots of punch, inside the car you are surrounded by exquisite quality (if you choose the OPTIONAL luxury packages), but beneath the skin there is a time bomb. Materials, components and especially electrics and electronics are a nightmare and they seem to be designed to withstand only the use for 3 yrs / 60,000 miles. I experienced serious problems with electrics and electronics, AT gearbox (transmission conductor), steering rack (!!!), countless electrical surges and...lousy dealer service. Treat yourself with A NEW MB, BUT ONLY WITHIN WARRANTY !

Best Features

Looks, driving experience, pleasant for long haul, quality build (inside), excellent engine, good fuel economy

Worst Features

Drivetrain, auto gear box, electrics and electronics are shambles, pathetic quality of the water-based paints, dealership service from A-Z (the only good experience is provided by the receptionists...), maintenance costs, sell the company to BMW or Toyota (Lexus) :-)
